February 1 in San Antonio history...

The Menger Hotel (right) holds its grand opening.

A loaf of bread  weighing nearly 30 pounds and 3 feet in length is posted up in a saloon on the east side of Military Plaza with the label:  “We’ll all eat bread when W. L. Richter is elected.”
[W.L. Richter was the owner of Richter’s Steam Bakery at the corner of S. Laredo and Santa Rosa streets, and would later produce Butter Krust Bread. He was running for Alderman.]

The Milam Cafeteria opens in the Milam Building at the intersection of Soledad and Travis streets.
